Introducing Sue Ellen Koons of 



Tell us a little about yourself:

I'm an amature artist and photographer living in rural Minnesota. The Lord and His creation are my inspiration. Our rural life is also important to me and these things are mostly what I portray in my digital art.

How did you get your start on Etsy?
Someone suggested Etsy and I found out how easy it is to set up a shop.

How did you choose your shop name?
Elm Creek runs near our place in the country.

What does a typical day look like for you?
Working full time at a bank, I have a few hours a week to work on my art. It keeps me sane and inspired.



If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?
 Jerusalem, for sure.

Lovely to find out more about Sue Ellen.

I have read some books about Elm Creek Quilts, so I am imagining your Elm Creek might be similar...?
